If you haven't seen up to Season 5, then you're in for some spoilers!

If you watch Game of Thrones, then you know by now that your favorite character is likely to die, if it hasn't happened a every time you pick a new one already. Sadly, character deaths aren't the worst things that Game of Thrones throws at you: rape, murder, torture, etc.

Here are 10 times that Game of Thrones definitely made you hate it with a fiery passion:

1. Joffrey

Yeah. Everything about him.

2. The making of "Reek"

The torture that Ramsay Bolton performed on Theon was also torturous for the audience watching. Especially when Ramsay did the unthinkable and... removed Theon's genitals.

3. The rape of Sansa Stark

It's been a long, difficult, and abusive road for Sansa Stark. Unfortunately, in order to get back to her home, she had to marry a psychopath. The controversial "rape" scene is something that really hit fans where it hurt. The fact that it's happening on a nightly basis (though we don't see it), only makes matters so much worse.

This issue had fans claiming they weren't watching anymore, though a lot of them later decided to give it one more shot. This is Game of Thrones, people! It's supposed to push the boundaries and we should expect it by now!

4. The slaughter of Robb, his mother, his men, and his pregnant fiancée

I've never been a big fan of Catelyn or Robb, but this was just brutal. Looking back... it should have been expected. There can only be one king, Robb.

So many dead people, including Catelyn, Robb, his unborn child, his woman, his men. What a scene.

5. The amputation of Jaime's hand

Whether or not you like Jaime, the cutting off of his hand was probably still painful for you to watch. It's painful for me to watch, yet I keep watching this dang GIF over and over...

6. When Jaime pushed Bran from the window of the tower

Back in the days of Jaime-hating, this was like, the worst thing. You know, back before you realized that Game of Thrones thrives on hurting you? Before you realized there are going to be way worse things happening soon?

But still, seeing a child thrown from a tower window is pretty bad. Especially when said kid ends up being paralyzed.

7. The sacrificing of Shireen

Poor little Shireen. The saddest part of all is that her parents were pretty terrible her entire life. Plus, she had Greyscale and wasn't even supposed to survive, and overcame a lot. She was locked away. Still, the poor girl only wanted to help her father.

Ser Davos was a better father to her than Stannis ever was. But, I could rant about that all day. This death was the saddest I've seen in a while on the show. Her screams of agony still pain me.

8. When Shae totally (literally) screwed Tyrion over

Ugh. This made me so mad. I'd come to adore Shae and when she betrayed Tyrion, it was like she betrayed me personally.

9. The beheading of Ned Stark

The moment I realized the rumors were true: Game of Thrones killed main characters and, therefore, would be the death of me.

10. The death of Khal Drogo

That's just wrong.

Is there a time that I didn't get to mention that made you hate Game of Thrones? Or at least angry? Sound off in the comments!
